It's 'yout', not 'ewt', as in Linton Kwesi Johnson's 'Want Fi Go Rave':

I woz
waakin doun di road

w´en ah hear annadah yout-man say

him seh:
mi naw wok fi noh pittance
mi naw draw dem assistance
mi use to run a lickle rackit
but wha, di police dem di stap it
an ah had woz to hap it

Yes, Slapshot......which reminds me....Strange Brew.

No where near top 10, but damn funny. "It's a jelly...".

...and here it is.

It's a reasonable comedy, good final performance from Fred Gwynne, what can i say, just can't get enough of Marisa Tomei.

She won the Supporting Actress Academy Award that year for more than just her derriere. Perhaps you are correct though, it doesn't hit the top ten bar, but beauty is in the eye of the beholder.

I'm sure many folks view American Graffiti and Caddyshack as fluff.

Fred Gwynne's judge - you're right. Just didn't think the film was funny.
